    is this bass really worth $500?
  2. Hamer?
    That's a Hohner B-Bass 5-string. Not bad at all for an inexpensive five. Uses Steinberger hardware too, if I remember right....

    Looks like a 6 string to me? Not many 6 strings in that price range. If it plays well and has a decent tone, I would say its worth it.

    But yep, it's definitely a Hohner... (the 6-strings didn't have the Steinberger hardware either...)

    The 6-strings retail over here for about £450 or so, so that would work out to be roughly $600 US... so yep, probably a bargain...

    $500 for a used Hofner? I think thats alittle high... I've played that same model before... it didn't impress me at all.. floppy b-string.. jagged frets.. muddy tone.. but if you've played it and you like it then I say thats all that matters
